The Designed Series
What if the next big drug was you?
Lucid is that next big drug.
It gives its user the ability to sense and control other people’s bodies. Scientists and drug dealers seek its power. There’s just one catch. This drug can’t be made in a lab, only by the rare person’s body.
Raleigh is an anomaly who makes an extraordinary amount of Lucid. Now she’s being hunted for the drug in her veins. She finds an unlikely ally in a boy named Rho, who also makes the drug, but he isn’t what he seems. His origins are unusual and his past tainted.
Nothing is straightforward and no matter what she chooses someone will get hurt. Raleigh’s learning that Lucid isn’t the drug she thinks it is, nor is she the girl everyone expects.
Book One of The Designed Series
Would you hide or fight?
In siding with the Designed, Raleigh has entered into a world of peril. While she knew her decision would have consequences, she had no idea just how severe they would be. Now on the run, she’s being hunted from all sides. In order to save herself and her friends from being drained of their Lucid by their enemies, Raliegh is forced to work with Chi, whose loyalties are torn, and Tau, who believes she’s working for their enemy and intends to prove it.
The Lucid trade is volatile, and the men who run it are malicious. They don’t care who they hurt, or even kill, in their quest to expand their reach and power. They must be stopped, and Raleigh plans on being the one to do it. Can she end the synthetic trade before it ends her? And is she willing to pay the price to do it?
Book Two of The Designed Series
Following the temporary alliance with Grant and Able, Raleigh and her team must find a way to defeat the evil Sigma before he strikes again. To do so they must take a perilous journey to an island off the Greek coast where an ancient tribe of healers has a secret that may be able to help them. Sealed off from the world, the order only allows those with serious illnesses to benefit from their knowledge. In order to infiltrate the group, Raleigh must fake illness by weakening herself and allowing her blackouts to return. The ruse works, but what she finds on the other side will make her question not only herself, but everything she has learned about Lucid, as well.
Will Raleigh and the Designed find the answers they need before Sigma returns to exact his vengeance?

Book Four of The Designed Series
Lucid has hit the streets. It’s a new drug that allows its user the ability to sense and control other people’s bodies… and things are about to get ugly.
After traveling the world with the genetically-engineered members of The Designed, Raleigh returns home to the United States having found both her confidence and her ability to induce Lucid in others. A war is brewing, and with Designed on both sides, neither has the advantage. Out of options and in desperate need of allies, Raleigh and her friends are forced to side with Grant and Able, the pharmaceutical company responsible for creating The Designed in the first place. It’s an uneasy alliance, complicated further by her reluctance to accept the corporate giant’s vision for Lucid. Does this dangerous substance really have a place in the world? Do The Designed? Does she?
With the final showdown looming, Raleigh must put these thoughts aside as she struggles to come to terms with her own growing powers and the very real possibility that she’ll have to kill Sigma, the leader of the opposition. Is she willing to compromise her morals in order to win the day and save her friends and family? Or will she falter when the decisive moment arrives?
